    If You Lived With the Indians of the Northwest Coast

    by Anne Kamma and Pamela Johnson

    The Indians who lived along the northern Pacific coast were different from any other Native Americans. Thery were fishermen, wood carvers, and builders of totem poles; they were a hierarchical society with noblemen, commoners, and slaves in which material wealth was greatly admired and sought after. What was it like to be a child among Haida, Makah, Tlingit, or other coastal groups? This and dozens of questions are answered in this informative and beautifully illustrated book.

    A True Book™—American Indians: The Aztec
